Dragon Wedding Flutes by DragonsAndBeasties Dragon Wedding Flutes by DragonsAndBeasties
These two were made to go with this topper:

and a close up of just the dragons:


Gotta say, making flutes wasn't really that fun... maybe if I had straight stemmed glasses to work with it may have gone better, but these dragons were fighting gravity on those coned shape stems. I actually failed my first attempt at these, which REALLY pissed me off. I had even done a test set before I started the actual project to get an idea of how to do it! I stormed out of the studio and didn't return for a day or two because I was so disgusted with my failure. It is rare I can't figure a sculpture out, but THIS one got me. Even when I went back to the studio I shunned the project until I'd finished all my other projects, and it was the last one left. I had to scrap the first dragons and start over. Now that it is done, I am pretty happy with it, but I do not want to make flutes ever again :X

Commissions are currently closed, but pricing can be found here: [link] for future reference

Dragons hand-sculpted from Premo Sculpey clay, flutes purchased from Michaels

I was browsing through my favorites and found this again. I still get the same feeling I got when I first saw it. I just absolutely love these <3

I kinda find it funny that no one has asked this question:
Are they REAL, musical flutes? Or is there another definition of flute? XD

This Flute isn't a musical instrument...it's a type/style of drinking glass

why not just use super glue? i sort of ran into the same problem with a present i made it was a panda on a shot glass (different things, but) it kept falling off and it was horrid. so i decided to just make it on it, but bake it and then super glue it on the thing (the shot glass was made by me too.)

I want to say, although you had a hard time with these, these turned out amazing. but then again, I love your work anyway. haha. good job. and good job for not giving up :D


Oh one thing iv been meaning to ask, i dont know if i have or havent already but ether way, you make cake toppers yes? *looks up again* well is the clay safe for the cake? and do you put any sealers on to protect the sculptures? If so what? if not then ok...i think. haha
